Matt decided to take a break from recording an album, and gave us this gem of a greatest hits cd, along with 2 new songs, and a b-side.
There is nothing wrong with the first cd, although he failed to add anything from "Audio of Being." You can find some of those songs done acoustically on the second disc, which was divided into three parts: "Rooms", "Loser Anthems", and "Lo-fi B-sides", the latter two were previously available as limited edition discs. Although we have heard "Born To Kill" on "Beautiful Midnight", this original version doesn't disappoint, and is almost superior to the version heard on "Midnight".
"Rooms" includes nine songs re-recorded as acoustic songs. I give Matt credit for including such songs as "Advertising On Police Cars", "Tripoli", and "Truffle Pigs." There are some songs I wish weren't done acoustically, such as "Hello Time Bomb", "North American for Life", and "Generation X-Wing." These songs are better hard and heavy.
The DVD has every Matt Good video ever made, and also includes a bonus animated video for "Whle We Were Hunting Rabbits." My faves would have to be the two songs excluded from the hits cd: "Carmelina" with the classic bad joke by Rich and discussion about the lyrics to Destiny Child's "Bootylicious", and the gnome-stealing video for "Antipop" featuring Dale Earndhart travelling around America with Matt and their new gnome buddy.
Get this three-discer while you still can, people!
